What I expected. Expressive nose with ripe pears and peaches, peach blossom, buttery notes of oak. On the ripe side of Chardonnay yet fresh and elegant

I preferred the Enemigo red much more than this white #chardonnay it is a new world style with some tropical fruit aromas and a new oak undertone with hints of coconut. It is a well-made wine, fine and delicate. #argentina #mendoza

Nose - ripe tropical fruit, pear, pear blossoms, hint of (white? ) pepper, light oak aroma, slight dusty cedar
Palate - mouth feel is heavy but not buttery (so substantial tannins for a white) ; notes of ripe pear, red apples, raw papaya (like in a salad), lemon peel including the bitterness from the pith, some peach, hint of lychee, trace of spice, some chalk in the after taste

Over all... very well made Chardonnay... balanced and made for the long haul

$24.99 wines.com , it was fine but maybe not for the price.
